Today’s guest post is from Jennifer at Mother Thyme.  Wait until you see all of her beautiful photos!  You’ll be turning on your oven before you get to the bottom of the post!
 

 

I love making donuts especially baked and eliminating the frying.  Baked donuts taste just as good as the fried donuts with a little less guilt.

 

 

For this delicious batch I substituted all-purpose or cake flour which I typically use in my donut recipes for whole wheat white flour.  The flavor is fantastic and the combination of ricotta cheese in the mixture makes these donuts soft and delicate.  I top these donuts with a Lemon Vanilla Bean Glaze.  I love the combination of ricotta with lemon and blueberries.  It makes for the perfect topping with just a hint of lemon.     

 

I love bringing the donut shop right into my kitchen.  No need to drive to pick up a dozen donuts that could have been sitting out for a while.  Whipping up a fresh batch of tasty donuts and brewing a fresh cup of coffee makes for a delicious treat.   These freeze well too so if you make a batch pop some in the freezer to grab and go during the week.  

Enjoy!
Jennifer

      Chris,
      You could make soft cookies with the batter and glaze them after. Use 2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie and check them with a tooth pick so you know when they’re done.

    Hello! These look great, and actually my second batch is in the oven now. I am having trouble with them rising. The top came out flat :( although they still tasted delicious. Any tips?

    I LOVE this recipe, and it would be perfect for my new link party. This link party is called ‘Required Ingredient Recipe Link Party’ and I’ll be holding it every Sunday, starting right now.

    The idea is to focus on a single ingredient each week and I’m starting off with cheese because everyone loves cheese!

    I’m planning to do a ton of promotion to get this link party off the ground, so any recipes you post should get lots of attention.

    Regardless of if you link up or not, I’m pinning this recipe! Yum!

    Hope to see you at the link party…
